Intro to Pole

Saturday, August 19th, 2:15pm

As part of the “Discordia Days Burlesque Festival”, Descending Angels will be hosting a couple of special intro classes with proceeds from the event going to the ACLU.

Our “Intro to Pole” class will be perfect for all beginners. We will work with the fundamentals of pole dancing in this class – going over a proper warm-up, foundational movements like a classic walk, linking transitions and a basic spin. We will end with a relaxing cool down of some key stretches. During this class, we will go over not only the movements themselves, but also the safety aspects and body mechanics so you understand the why and how. With some of these movements we will explain how you may continue to practice at home, even without a pole and show you the modifications to do so.

Class is open to all genders, 18+. Please do not wear lotion the day of class and absolutely no late arrivals will be admitted. A full list of the studio policy may be found here, Descending Angels Policy.

Class is $20. Spacing is limited so please register ahead of time on Discordia’s website to reserve your space.

There will be lots of mesmerizing performances and informative workshops happening all weekend. Please check out the other events of the festival here, http://discordiadaysburlesquefest.weebly.com/

Intro to Liquid Motion

Saturday, August 19th, 3:30pm

As part of the “Discordia Days Burlesque Festival”, Descending Angels will be hosting a couple of special intro classes with proceeds from the event going to the ACLU. 

Our second class of the afternoon will be “Intro to Liquid Motion”. Curious about what exactly Liquid Motion is? Join us in this 75-minute intro class. Participants will learn what makes Liquid Motion so liquid. It’s a dance style that utilizes conditioning, sensual movement, and dance theory, to provide the student with a total mind and body movement experience. We will work with the windows and threading of the body as well as the tuck and the tilt of the pelvis. It is strictly a floorwork class. 

Knee pads are a must – no knee pads, no class! Arms and legs should be covered with something fitted that will not stick to floor (ex: long sleeves, leggings, leg warmers). Layering works well. Ankle socks also come in handy for some of the movements.

Class is open to all genders, 18+. Absolutely no late arrivals will be admitted. A full list of the studio policy may be found on the studio’s website, Descending Angels Policy.

Class is $20. Spacing is limited so please register ahead of time on Discordia’s website to reserve your space.
